Chakras

I think we’re going to be on chakras, off and on, for a while.  I’ve started a book to try to make chakras a little more accessible at deeper levels for those new to chakras.To understand Chakras thoroughly takes time, and most people don’t have that level of time to commit to them.  I've always found them fascinating, so my goal is to pass on some of that more in-depth knowledge in a way that will make it easier for people to understand.For example, when we start looking at Chakras, we find that it involves our chakras, generally there are believed to be seven; however, some systems use nine, or 12. In addition, it involves the Kundalini energy that originates in the root chakra, and the “prana,” which is the Sanskrit word for the life force that feeds the chakras.  I have studied chakras along with many aspects of Pagan and Eastern spiritual practice for most of my 60 plus years, and I have over 30 years of teaching experience.  In the course of the book, I will cover the basics of C...

This week, I want to share some of the items we use in our own spells.  Personally, I like to use our cat candles. I think they’re adorable, and they are long burning, so your spell has time to build upon itself.I don’t know about you, but I figure everyone can use a bit more money and some good luck, so this week we have two wealth attracting spells, one for love, and one to banish bad luck.  Wealth Attracting Spell 1Using your boline, carve a green cat candle with your name, goals and identifying information. Anoint the candle with money drawing oil and burn.Wealth Attracting Spell 2Use green cat candles for attracting money. Anoint the green cat candle with Money Drawing or Wealthy Way Oil. Write the amount of money needed for a specific purpose on a square of parchment and place it beneath the green cat candle. Burn the candle 7 minutes the first evening, 11 minutes the 2nd evening, 7 minutes the third evening etc. until you receive the money you need. You can also carve your desir...

Seeking Your Animal Totem

Seeking Your Animal Totem

Bellisana 24/05/2018 0
People often confuse Animal Totems and Familiars, and the best explanation of the difference that I’ve found is that Familiars are assistants and Animal Totems are guides and teachers. Their purpose is to show you something, teach you something, or show you a particular path. Both connections are spiritual in nature, but the type of bond you have with each is different.Animal totems represent our connection to the energy of the universe. Sometimes they show us skills and talents that we have or that we need. Other times they reflect our own qualities back to us. In almost all cases, they help us solidify and maintain our connection to nature and the universal. Many cultures revere animals as spiritual beings, and Jung’s view of animal totems as a representation of archetypes within the “collective unconscious” explains much of this. They provide the link between us and the energy of the universe.Cultures who revere nature and our connection to it have long found meaning in the appearan...

Spell to increase Personal Power

Bellisana 19/05/2018 0
The moon is waxing, so it’s time for new beginnings and growth. This week we’ve got a spell for personal power. Whether it’s magical power, more internal personal power, or both, this spell can help. Many, myself included, believe that personal power and magical power go together to form our personal power, so I usually include both in my thought processes and my preparation.This spell takes a bit of time, but if carefully and completely done, will help you add to your personal store of power.  You will need:1 Red Candle1 Yellow Candle1 Violet Candle1 Green Candle1 Black CandleJasmine oilRosemary & Rose petalsCauldronThe Magician (Tarot Card)The Magician represents any who make the connection between Gaia and the universe. The Magician suggests trusting your imagination and letting yourself manifest your new reality through visualization. Let your soul guide you.

Zen Space: The Vision Board

Zen Space: The Vision Board

Bellisana 14/04/2018 0
Finally, it’s officially spring, and Beltane is fast approaching. As I finish my vision board, I thought I would share what helps me when I’m doing my vision board, and hopefully, my tips will help you as well. As you know, for me, this is part of the whole spring cleaning, rebirth ritual to renew my mind and my office space, so I want all the energy in it to be positive. We’ve discussed setting up and making sure your Vision board is where you can easily see it every day.I view this recreating my space process as my own spring ritual, and while we will probably attend the local Beltane ritual, this is how I connect the creative energy of my workspace with the energy of the universe and the spirit of fertility and rebirth of Beltane, and we’ll have a small celebration ritual at home on Beltane Eve.Since this happens in steps which I may or may not complete on the same day, I find it helpful to meditate for a few minutes each time before I start working on it. It helps me relax and prep...
